Last time I saw Bernie he was living in Baltimore and working as an electrian. Very nice guy and had great alley stories.-Greg
Bernie is alive & well,living in Balt. same place all his life.Yes he also is semi retired & working as an electrician in a Balt. hospital.part-time Bernie was on the Beatty-Cole show many years wore many colorful costumes & his gags were always fresh & tasteful. In my opinion he is & was one of the premier white-faced clowns of the 60sthru the early 80s
Hey,...Bernie is alive and well in Baltimore. He is semi-retired and put the funny stuff in the trunk a long time ago. I wasn't known as Bernie in the pro world as I tried to surpress the human aspect of being a character clown. Clowns were always a fantasy an I perferred them that way. On Beatty Show from 60's through 80's.
Bernie,Please shoot me an email at:firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks,Pat Cashinhttp://www.cashincomedyco.com
My name is Keith Karas and I currently serve as the President of COAI Free State Clown Alley #30 in Baltimore, MD. This alley's history goes way back and Bernie, Lou Walston, Walt Lee and many other clowns helped make clowning in Baltimore what it is today. I am a semi-pro clown and circus historian and as such have several old COAI mags from the 1970's with Bernie's pic and dispatches while while he was "with it" on the road.Gosh, our alley would be honored to hear some of his stories.Bernie, please call me at 410.453.9288 if you are interested in either coming to out to an alley meeting one evening or being videotaped for an interview.
Super color scheme, I like it! Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing this wonderful site with us.»
I was a staff musician with the CBCB circus during the 1971 season and Bernie was one of the clown/electricians that made me feel like family , since I joined the show late in the season.I lost his address, but remembered him being around the Baltimore area,teaching stage lighting at a college. Tell him his old tuba player wants to say hello. Dave Miller/Luessenhop
